Dix Financed by Big Money from Out-of-District

Bill Dix, the Republican Senate Majority Leader from Shell Rock, is supported by big contributors from outside his Iowa Senate District 25, not by small donors in Butler, Grundy, Hardin and Story Counties

Dix raised $460,946 in political contributions during 2017 according to the Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board. But the really big money will roll in during this 2018 election year. When the final tally is in, Dix will probably raise and spend over a million dollars just to get a job that pays $37,500 per year.

Here are just a few of his contributors:

Kyle Krause, Waukee - $30,000 (Kum & Go)

Kurt Rasmussen, Johnston - $25,000 (construction)

Douglas McAnich, Johnston- $25,000 (road construction)

Dennis Elwell, Ankeny - $15,000 (real estate)

Jeannine Rissi, Center Point - $15,000 (highway equipment)

Richard Stark, Boca Raton, Florida - $12,000 (banking)

So, what gives? Why would special interests from outside his district want him to be your Senator so badly that they are willing to throw serious money at him? Because he represents them, not you. Which begs the question - What are they getting for their money? And what are you getting for yours?
